Hi Ari, I saw your picture of your Foot, I am sure you had a lot of pain to deal with but hope it's all OK now. Speedy recovery and happy flying soon. Tks Wayne

Sorry to be so slow in befriending you. Ive not looked at the Zenith website for a long time.  Thanks for your comments.  I can only beat those young guns with the big motors and tyres in the STOL competition if they miss the mark on their landing and I am on target! Being lighter, I can stop a little quicker than them, so there is always hope!

Ari,

of all the Beanie mods I have seen I like yours probably the best. I would be very interested in any information you might have to help me replicate it on my 701.

thanks,

Lonny M. Kirk

Arie, Schould you desire to forward photos, it may be better to send them direct. My address is utemos@verizon.net. If you desire to see my strip go to google earth, my address is 3224 sterner road Nazareth pa. 18064. I own a eighty acre farm which I rent to a local farmer who raises mostly grass for horses.

Arie, I located your lake on Google earth however the resalusion is not very good to see the dock. It's hard to find a remote location with in forty plus miles of home here in the states.

What took you so long to build the dock?

Yes, I am 100% Finnish heritage. Also, my wife is from Latvia. I often show her pics of planes flying over the Baltic.

Fred Burg had an easy way to expand his 701 cockpit.

Hi Ari,

I haven't played with the heating in my 701. I know that it is way TOO COLD as all temps are way TOO LOW in the winter. I will have to install a winter kit if I want to see those needles reach a nice WARM temp. As is, I never saw more than 130 for oil and 50 for water coolant. These are never enough to warm anything... Having an auto conversion engine, I dont worry abot those low temps (shock cooling) but the PILOT NEVER gets WARM..That I really hate. This will have to wait for next year as summer is coming...Soon hopefully !

Regards,

Norm

Hi Ari,

Well you know Americans...what they didn't invent...they dont use !

Same for me, The inside Beanie is covered with insulating aluminum/plastic kinda wrap...I used this material in the doors and around the luggage area.Works real good and stop noises ...especially oilcanning and warms up the place.

Regards,

Norm

Hi Ari,

I agree if the Beanie was made using the oridinary wing rib it would be a SUPER BEANIE...

Would help with wing loading and would give more headroom ... I taught of that but the leading edge design was a challenge for me... I'm checking for the strut and I'll let you know what I find.

I am 185cm but more than 50 years old...So old school measurements !

Regards,

Norm

Hi Ari,

You're right ! Actually I wonder why this roof has to be designed flat ??? I guess it is

easier to fabricate having no curves - like the rest of the 701 anyway... But, once you

taste the added SPACE, you wonder why you didn't modify that roof any earlier...

Being 6 feet 2 inches, It was in my top 5 priority list todo...

Regards,

Norm

Hi Ari,

I like what you do/fly ! My flap lever is electrically operated...Much easier to operate :-)

Regards,

Norm

Ari, Wade Grandpre from  north Idaho here.  I did a beanie mod when I built my 701, so I would be interested in your experience of flying with and without the mod. and how it flies.I have never had the pleasure of flying a regular 701. I did a quite a few mod`s while building and I am still planning on more, the experimentor, experimenting on his experimental a/c.

                                                             Happy flying always, Wade

Ari,

Looks like you are making some progress.  I spent a lot of time today fixing a mistake!  Used wrong head on rivet gun and had to drill out many rivers.

Ari,

Sounds like you are having fun in the snow.  I am hoping it stops here.

Ari,

Welcome aboard the Zenith group.  It is a great group for getting help and connecting with people who share a common interest.  I know you will enjoy your plane.  Are you flying now?

Ari,

Good luck on the rebuild.  They are great airplanes.  I live in northwest Illinois and we just had the worst snow storm in many years.  Up to 24 inches of snow and wind speeds of 45 mph.  I think I'll start on some wheel skis!
